BBBSMS and Arby's - Partners and Friends
The staff of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mississippi were thrilled to meet with the management and staff of Arby's on Highway 80.
They are getting ready to hold a Grand Re-opening on June 15th. The folks at Arby's have been great and supportive partners of Big Brothers Big Sisters of MS and we can't thank them enough for their generous support over the years.
A word about the new remodel. The interior is almost as warm as the welcome you receive walking in the front door. The wood accents, in the dining room make you feel like you are at home. And, the food is great, please stop by and tell them BBBSMS sent you! We will be there on June 15th to help them celebrate!
